I'm going to be visiting your great state in a few months. We're going to watch the Motocross Des Nations in Lakewood on September 25/26, and then hang out for a week with no real agenda, should be fun. We don't exactly get out much, so I'd love to hear about some things that shouldn't be missed. We're a thirty something couple with and adventurous 8yo girl, we love the outdoors and hate big cities. Transportation is limited to auto, maybe a train, and we don't putting some good miles under our belts. Starting around the Denver area with a week to spare, what's to be done?

Depending on weather factors, the Aspen trees might be in their fall colors up in the mountains.

A drive up through Estes Park, into Rocky Mountain Nat Park, down around Grand Lake, etc, would be outstanding.

That was my first thought as well. Also check out the other threads on this and the Denver forum for things to do.

Rocky Mountain National Park. It's one of the most beautiful mountain areas in Colorado, plus there's a highway that goes up to above 12,000 feet which offers spectacular views ( and cold weather in the summer).
